ABOUT THE GAME
The TCU Lady Frogs (16-6, 7-1 C-USA) are looking for their 10th win in 11 games Monday night when they host the Saint Louis Billikens (3-19, 2-7 C-USA) at 7 p.m. CST in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. TCU owns a 5-0 all-time record against SLU and is 4-0 versus the school since joining Conference USA for the 2001-02 season. TCU is coming off a 74-64 victory against Memphis Saturday that saw senior forward Sandora Irvin break the NCAA's career record for blocked shots. She has 434, six more than the previous record. The Billikens were beaten by Houston in their last game, 92-47, in Houston. Last year in St. Louis, TCU was faced with a 16-point halftime deficit, 40-24, and managed to come back for a 69-66 victory. It remains the largest halftime disparity the Lady Frogs have ever had in a win. TCU has only won by an average of 7.2 points in its five games with Saint Louis.
